True Satisfaction

The enjoyment of God is the only happiness with which our souls can be satisfied…Fathers, mothers, husbands, wives, or children, or the company of earthly friends are but shadows, but enjoyment of God is the substance.  These are but scattered beams, but God is the sun.  These are but streams, but God is the fountain.  These are but drops, but God is the ocean.

(Jonathan Edwards, The Christian Pilgrim)
